Victims and Martyrs at Göteborgs Konsthall
Conrad Botes, Communist & Socialist, 2011.


GOTHENBURG.- During the winter, Göteborgs Konsthall presents the second part of the project Victims and Martyrs with several national and international artists.

In our time, victims and martyrs have been the subject of wide media attention. We are constantly fed reports of individuals and groups suffering under oppression, injustices and conflicts—circumstances linked to victims and, in an extended sense, potentially also to martyrdom.

The exhibition Victims and Martyrs focuses on the concepts' complexity and inner contradictions, which frequently leads to the break-up of the borders between victims and perpetrators. The participating artists interpret, activate and stage the landscape in which victimisation and martyrdom take place. A number of interventions focus the conditions that make it possible to maintain and reproduce the roles today.

Why do some historical figures appear as victims and martyrs to some, and as terrorists to others? How do we relate to perpetrators who are also victims, and vice versa, to victims who turn out to also be perpetrators? Why do some people gain recognition after death, while others end up merely as figures in the statistics?

The exhibition is the second part of the project Victims and Martyrs and has been realised as a result of a collaboration between Göteborgs Konsthall and Clandestino Institut.

Participating artists: Anita & Anita (Annika von Hausswolff and Lotta Antonsson), Conrad Botes, Juan Manuel Echavarría/Fundación Puntos de Encuentro, Runo Lagomarsino, Rabhi Mroué, Tanja Ostojić, Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir, Magnus Thierfleder and Artur Żmijewski.
